1. Consumer Electronics

Advanced battery packs that propel consumer electronics forward

Years ago, the ideas probably seemed like science fiction: Deposit a check into a bank account from a park bench. Tote an entire music collection up a mountain. The rapid evolution of consumer electronics stems from the development of portable devices that are lightweight, ergonomic, maintain sufficient battery life and don’t cost too much. It requires careful battery pack design planning, creative mechanical design solutions, and in-depth integration of battery power source with device circuitry.

With nearly four decades of experience producing portable battery packs that optimize performance, safety, reliability, time-to-market and cost, GBP is well positioned to help manufacturers keep pace with the $1 trillion consumer electronics market. We offer value through:

  • Portable design expertise and global component sourcing: Through relationships with multiple vendors of specialized components, we can meet any specification with sensitivity to cost.
  • Manufacturing know-how, reduced time to market: Because we produce more than 50 million safe, reliable battery packs each year, we’ve perfected ways to minimize costs through rapid production and set-up processes.
  • Quality + Safety + Compliance = Reliability: There’s a reason we’ve shipped more than 60 million battery packs without a safety incident. We employ ISO 9000 and Six-Sigma tools to continually optimize our processes. We provide IEEE, UL, CTIA, UNDoT, and other agency approvals and certifications.

Enhance the competitive value of your products with a GBP custom battery pack solution.

GBP is one of the industry’s largest battery pack designers and manufacturers for:

  • Tablets
  • Mobile Phones & Smart Phones
  • Cameras
  • MP3 Players
  • GPS Devices
  • And many other consumer electronics

 

2. Medical Devices

Safe, reliable power that’s fit for portable healthcare

In the quest to quell rising health care costs, portable medical devices are being prescribed with increasing frequency. Globally, the medical device market is expected to reach $350 billion by 2016 as more patients are served remotely with injection and infusion pumps, medical monitors, portable X-ray units, diagnostic equipment and an array of other home health devices.

While portability and miniaturization make medical electronics more practical, the true measure of effectiveness — and regulatory approval — is contingent on connectivity, safety, data security, quality and reliability. Performance failures may mean the loss of a patient or the deterioration of their health.

With so much at stake, many of the world’s leading medical OEMs and contract manufacturers partner with GBP. We have a nearly 20-year track record of providing safe, high-reliability battery packs for healthcare and other mission-critical businesses. Through our independent and accredited test lab, we can design, test, and certify each battery pack to the most stringent of medical industry standards, ensuring:

  • ISO 13485 and UL 60601 compliance;
  • Design History Files (DHF) and Device History Records (DHR) for FDA approval;
  • Design Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (DFMEA) for design process risk mitigation;
  • Process Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (PFMEA) for manufacturing process risk mitigation;
  • Certificate of Compliance (CoC) and quality assurance checklists; and
  • Continuous improvement, lean manufacturing and Just in Time product delivery.

Our commitment to reliable, high quality battery packs has made us a qualified supplier for medical devices.

4. EV/HEV

GBP’s solutions for Electric Vehicles provide leading-edge battery technology, remarkable reliability and excellent quality. Key requirements for Light Electric Vehicles are increasing battery operating range, lifetime and reduced charging time. GBP battery offers a light, green, high energy density and safety characteristics of lithium iron phosphate for your LEV, making it eco-friendly and cost effective.

Developing affordable batteries offering long driving range is the biggest challenge to increasing sales of plug-in electric vehicles. Batteries for these vehicles differ substantially from traditional lead-acid batteries used in internal combustion engine vehicles. Lithium batteries are smaller, lighter, more cost effective and safer when using electronically controlled cooling systems. Various chemistries can be applied, with lithium-ion appearing the most feasible approach at the present time.
